Last Night at Symphony

Boston Symphony Orchestra and Tanglewood Festival Chorus with Daniele Gatti conductor, at the conclusion of the Verdi Requiem. Soprano Fiorenza Cedolins, soprano; Ekaterina Gubanova, mezzo-soprano; Stuart Neill, tenor; and Carlo Colombara, bass. Also on stage is John Oliver, conductor of the Tanglewood Festival Chorus.

This week's program kicks off the BSO's celebration of the bicentennial of Giuseppe Verdi. 2013 is also the "Year of Italian Culture in the United States," showcasing the best of Italy - past, present and future - throughout the entire United States. More information about all the events can be found on their website:

I'm just back from vacation and attended my first BSO concert of the season last night. I'll be posting some photos from my vacation in a couple of days.

Ah, one of the things I miss about Boston and that area - Symphony Hall and Tanglewood. Must have been a great performance.

Fantastic! It has been a loooooong time since I have been able to be at Symphony Hall. Maybe this year I will find a way to go back.

Thanks for the information about the Italy festival. I love Italy and will be sure to attend some of these events.

Hope your vacation was good.
